Facing Joblessness? Dealing with a medical condition or some problem with no possible end in sight? Have you ever prayed about it and felt like God hasn’t heard you? You are not alone!
I’m sure everyone can relate to this. In fact, even Joseph and Paul felt like this, but it was part of their processing. God deliberately designed their processes in this manner so that He could build the right internal posture in them. Both Joseph and Paul had to migrate internally from a place of pride to one of humility, before God could have effectively use them for His works.
In his book “Dealing with Difficult Situations… the Processing of the Lord” Wayne Brown reminds us that “God is always perfect when it comes to timing.” He is not random or arbitrary, nor is He wicked. He is our Sovereign Lord — The Alpha and Omega! He knows the exact beginning and end of our lives.
In the midst of your circumstances, God is building His nature on the inside of you; He is calling you to a higher standard, a more developed or spiritually matured version of yourself.
